Technical Certificates of Credit (TCC's) can be completed in less than a year and offer education specific to on the job performance. The certificate courses are strictly program-related and can later be applied towards earning a diploma or degree.
A Diploma Program typically takes a year and a half to complete and broadens your base of knowledge beyond the core courses found in a TCC. Diploma programs consist of program-related courses as well as general core courses such as English, Math, and Science.

Finally, adult education courses are designed to help prepare you to enroll in a college degree program or learn skills you need to enter the workforce. They include GED® prep, ESL classes, citizenship courses and more.
